Saturday 25 June 2022
10am – 1pm
Join artist + author Pippa Pixley on a Charcoal Sketching workshop at Harewood.
We will explore the techniques and materials needed to create line, value, detail, and texture using light and dark marks. Pippa will teach you how to draw trees, bushes, flora and fauna, and the landscape in a light and loose, free and gestural way. You also will discover the superpower of masking to add a professional finish to your work.
Learn how charcoal is made and how it has been put to use as an art material from ancient times. Try out different grades: from fine vines cut on the waning moon to lumpwoods foraged from the orchards and forestry surrounding Harewood House.
On arrival please park in the main car park. You will need to bring a copy of your booking confirmation to show our team on arrival.
Please arrive at the Terrace Tearooms 15 minutes before the workshop is due to start.
Bookings can be made online, or alternatively please contact our Visitor Experience Team on 0113 218 1000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
